Turkey’s Path to the European Union: Open Road or Cul-de-sac? (Riccardo Serri)


Date: Mar 01, 2012

Speakers:
David Cuthell, Adjunct Associate Professor, SIPA
Riccardo Serri, EU Foreign Service and Visiting Scholar, Middle East Institute

In October 2005, the Republic of Turkey embarked on accession negotiations with the European Union. More than six years on, the process has all but stalled. By contrast, Croatia started negotiations on the same date and is now slated to join in 2013. For Turkey, much remains to be accomplished and there was no tangible progress last year. This lecture will discuss what went wrong in the process, and whether Turkey is still on the path to joining the EU.

Co-sponsored by BEI and the Middle East Institute.
